People of Oliver Wyman in Japan

My favorite thing about being part of Oliver Wyman is how people here genuinely love to have fun. We organize weekly happy hours and occasional social events to bond outside of the work space. As an example, we traveled to Seoul and had a joint party with our colleagues in Seoul for our Christmas event in 2019. We also keep the same spirit when we are at the office because we believe work should have fun elements for us to be creative and effective at the same time.

Outside of supporting my development as a consultant, Oliver Wyman has also become an important pocket of community and friendship. In between light-hearted happy hours and reflections on being “third culture kids”, the close-knit group of consultants in the Tokyo office quickly transitioned from being colleagues to friends.

What’s special about Oliver Wyman is that even at Consultant level, you can lead the entire engagement process with the team’s support. In my first year, I worked with a SEA conglomerate to support on the fundraising strategy for a +30-year bio-conservation and reforestation program. I feel very lucky to have been apart of this exciting journey with our client and help save the local environment.

The global exposure and the people make Oliver Wyman a great place to work. I've worked in over 10 markets thus far and its rare to find a company that provides you global project experience from early in your career. Throughout these projects, I've had the pleasure of working with colleagues from all over the world, and they have all been one of the smartest people I've ever known. Its stimulating working with them, they are so supportive to their teammates and always kind to lend a willing hand.

With the variety of industries that we constantly deal with and the challenging problems that we are asked to solve, there is no denying that there is a steep learning curve. Oliver Wyman however has provided me with all the right tools and support systems to ensure I am able to succeed.
